I think every time I share a cookie recipe I start with a declaration of love for cookies. I just can’t help it. I don’t crave cake or donuts or pie. When I think of a sweet treat, it’s cookies.
The minute that bag of Otto’s Cassava Flour arrived at my house the thoughts began to creep in to my mind. I try and tell my self, I’m going to use it to cook with, I envision beautiful hand pies, tortillas & breaded chicken, but cookies quickly push those thoughts aside. What a bully.
When I made grain free bacon granola, I was done for. Before that granola even saw coconut yogurt, it was instigating with the cassava flour. Plotting against me I tell you!
This grain free granola was eye-balled… but it went something like:
1 cup coconut flakes, toasted
3 slices crispy cooked (& cooled) bacon, I use Pederson’s, tossed in cinnamon & ginger
1/2 cup chopped up dried banana (not plantain chips, although those could work)
1 cup carob chips
Toss everything to combine. I stored it in an air tight jar for a day, then in the fridge after that. So yummy! Doubles well as a trail mix!
You see what I mean... this granola was meant for cookies. These were chewy, crunchy and absolutely addicting.
